Konza Prairie http://kmuw.org en Sierra Club Irked At Ozone Monitor Shutdown http://kmuw.org/post/sierra-club-irked-ozone-monitor-shutdown <p>The Kansas Chapter of the Sierra Club says it's a mistake for the EPA to stop monitoring ozone pollution on the Konza Prairie, near Manhattan. Ozone concentrations there have been consistently higher than the level allowed under federal air quality standards.<br><br>The monitor four miles south of Manhattan has been collecting data since 2002. The EPA says their monitors operate at the discretion of the landowner.</p> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 11:18:10 +0000 Bryan Thompson 15849 at http://kmuw.org Sierra Club Irked At Ozone Monitor Shutdown
